uw housing (web only)

Carolyn Smith, director of University of Wyoming auxiliary services, discusses siting of new dorms on UW’s campus during a June 16 meeting.

The University of Wyoming Housing Task Force — consisting of legislators, university officials and Laramie Mayor Joe Shumway — voted unanimously Wednesday to recommend UW “proceed immediately” with the demolition of Wyoming Hall and any other “necessary demolition work” required to begin constructing new dormitories on the southeast corner of Lewis and 15th streets.

The planned construction of dorms along the west side of 15th Street, which includes converting the parking lot east of the Wyoming Union into a green space, will eliminate more than 400 parking spaces on campus.

Who does this make sense to? Move offices from extremely old building to renovate for "new housing" and then renovate somewhere else for offices?
